TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Apple Country Chiropractic is confident in its ability
to relieve and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Williamson chiropractic patients. Not too startling,
81.7% of office workers in one study experienced musculoskeletal pain
in at least one area. Back pain was the most frequently experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. Curiously,
musculoskeletal system pain was found to be high in office
workers whose physical activity levels were found to be low. 58.5%
of these workers were “active” physically, 37.3% were less
active, 4.1% were very active. (1) Research shows that in-the-workplace
exercise interventions were effective in addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Apple Country Chiropractic appreciates the optimism this brings
for our Williamson back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Apple Country Chiropractic manages work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which integrates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other advice. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
brought on by too little utilization
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
methods of managing and trying
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers proposed
the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That’s a good idea. Apple Country Chiropractic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
